introducing: ibibio sound machine and their neo african funk

August 11, 2014

It’s always great to hear African music re-imagined, and here it comes in the form of Ibibio Sound Machine. The band is fronted by London-born Nigerian singer Eno Williams, and is inspired by the golden era of West-African funk and modern post-punk/electro. Album available here.
